We finally have a release date for Warcraft III: Reforged. The remake of Blizzard’s fan-favorite real-time strategy game is releasing on January 28, 2020. The game unlocks at 3 p.m. PST that day.
Warcraft III: Reforged will include the base game, plus The Frozen Throne expansion, which comes out to seven single-player campaigns totaling more than 60 missions, updated graphics and audio, and new matchmaking features courtesy of Blizzard’s Battle.net service.
Warcraft III: Reforged will cost players $29.99 for the standard edition, and $39.99 for the Spoils of War edition. The latter comes with different skins for the characters Arthas, Cenarius, Jaina, and Thrall. Spoils of War edition buyers will also get some cosmetic goods for other Blizzard games, such as the Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, a Third War cosmetic for cards in Hearthstone, the Mal’gganis pet in Diablo 3, and other items for Overwatch, Heroes of the Storm, and Starcraft 2.
